In the late 1960s, American radio stations blasted rock and roll 24 hours a day. But in the home country of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the only way 25 million people could hear their music was to tune in...to a boat.

Celebrated filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones's Diary, Love Actually) brings the incredible story of a band of rogue deejays who captivated British radio listeners in the '60s, playing the music that defined a generation and boldly defying the government that tried to shut them down--The Boat That Rocked.

Leading the cast of the comedy are Academy Award® winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as Radio Rock's infamous deejay The Count; Bill Nighy as the station's owner (and ship's captain), Quentin; Rhys Ifans as mystic deejay royalty Gavin; Nick Frost as the amorous, sarcastic disc jockey Dave; and Kenneth Branagh as the man out to silence Radio Rock, Minister Dormandy. Universal Pictures.
